When you have a group of people who are secure working together, it allows you to focus on improving the business instead of spending so much time and energy on relationships.
Louisville, KY (PRWEB) February 11, 2015
The Oliver Group and Roll Forming Corporation recently wrote a case study describing their work together and the steps taken to develop employees and enable growth of the organization. The study includes information collected from Ray Leather, President and CEO at Roll Forming Corporation and Dave Wilkins, Senior Consultant and Executive Coach from The Oliver Group.
Using a process called roll forming in which coils of flat metal are formed into custom shapes and cross-sections, Roll Forming Corporation (RFC) creates custom products for a wide range of industries, from aerospace and office equipment to railways and windows. RFC is a division of voestalpine AG, one of Europe's largest steel producing and processing companies. RFC is operated by a US-based team out of Shelbyville, KY, and it has quadrupled its growth in the last 10 years, from $30 million to $125 million. Today the company has 6 plants in 3 states with 350 employees.
Roll Forming and The Oliver Group have been partners for many years. RFC has been working with The Oliver Group for 25 years, utilizing the Predictive Index® (PI®) assessment tool, which measures the motivating needs of individuals and provides objective insights to organizations about employees. In 2002 RFC turned to The Oliver Group for help to develop its employees. Oliver Group worked with RFC in multiple areas to develop its talent and ensure that its leaders were positioned for performance as the organization grew. The case study outlines the employee development work, including:
-Custom coaching programs
Results have included:
-A culture of consensus
-Safety awards, including a SHARP certification by OSHA, which was only awarded to 22 Kentucky companies in recognition of a safety culture.
“When you have a group of people who are secure working together, it allows you to focus on improving the business instead of spending so much time and energy on relationships, to look externally instead of internally. That drives a lot of things, including sales growth. We also have been able to focus on top priorities such as our continuous improvement and safety programs," said Ray Leathers, President and CEO of Roll Forming Corporation.
